These three country’s football fans bought the most seats in the first phase of ticketing for next year’s World Cup in the South American country. Almost 900,000 tickets were sold to residents of 188 countries, organizers said earlier this week in an emailed statement. Brazilians got 72 percent of the tickets following a lottery of 6.2 million requests.
